Why is RAM so much more expensive?

In General is 16(4x4) gigs and multiple virtual machines + browsers + IDA started to miss intermittently.
Thinking to buy a 8x2. The price was about 10-14 thousand!!!
In the reviews a few months ago they were worth 7-10K, a year ago, 5-8ths.

The gugleniya gave supposedly the deficit. Who know it will be cheaper or more expensive?
Just the feeling that it is cheaper to buy the SSD on 126гб for and make the swap file there instead of the current HDD.
There is rationality in this?

A year ago, DDR4 RAM has produced a lot, and bought a little. Firms at a loss have reduced prices to at least sell something. Now reverse the situation, to produce become smaller, and the people went actively to buy and raised the price, turning a profit etc.
Well, there is no competition, only 3 firms produce DRAM. Agreed among themselves on prices and increase. Profit all you want

The main reason for this seasonal price fluctuation. Summer people, not to computers, going on vacation, but in the autumn most companies start the purchase, it turns out that in the summer a lot of "extra" components, and in the fall and winter a little. And the price, as is known, consists of supply and demand.
The second reason is inflation. The seller buys parts in dollars and sells you for rubles

No. Even the fastest SSD won't replace memory. Memory pressure eliminate only the addition of memory.

That's the new factory will start to work, and because they are new, chances are there will go DDR4. So it is possible that DDR4 will become cheaper, but only need to understand that if, conditionally, at the end of February the factory will work at full capacity, the market will notice not earlier than six months. And what will happen with the price of DDR3 to predict is that sooner.

What will replace the 16 GB in 4 bars in the same 16, but two? If you increase already 8x4 - then it is clear, and SSD here like at anything.

Has been written a bunch of memory-intensive SOFTWARE, scripts, JS, raw games. Increased demand.
Mobile telephones now also need RAM, as a lot of low-quality software. Consumers also can not explain it.

RAM manufacturers conspired and raised the prices accordingly.
